Lawyers have a lot of meetings, sure. They meet with clients and referral sources, potential clients, witnesses, and others. They meet with partners, and they meet with teams. But just because they do it a lot doesn’t mean they’re good at it. You need to be thoughtful about your meetings to avoid wasting time and maximize everyone’s effectiveness. So determine your purpose, set the agenda, and communicate in advance. Start on time, stick to the agenda, and always develop an action plan and next steps before your meeting ends. If you are a Traction devotee, like we are, you’ll understand how regular, productive, well-run meetings can transform your business.
